He wanted to be left alone when he ate his food. He didn’t want a small dog trying to nose their way into his meal when it was all he had. Is that so wrong? RILEY is 11 years young, a sweet, social and super friendly senior who loved his family. With a STERLING RESUME of skills -house and crate trained, well behaved home alone, well mannered, and more….- he thought he would get to spend his golden years with the people he loved ….the 2 children, the teenager & the small dog who he was respectful of, despite their disrespect of him. Riley should not be at a #shelter , he should be throning on a soft bed surrounded by a family who understands that when you reach the exalted age of 11, you should be pampered & adored. Riley needs that family now. NEEDS experienced #foster or #adopter in an adult only home (children over Age 13 ok), please hurry My movie! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWEZqyR5bR4
